Dragonrider

Since the first time I read Anne McCaffrey’s series the dragonriders of Pern I wished it was possible to do just that.
This dragon is actually one I made myself in wax, afterwards he was made in bronze, something I couldn’t do myself. The eyes are from a photo I took from a tiger in my local zoo. The wings are manipulated to look larger than they actually are.

That is brilliant. Amazing processing. I love the idea of getting the eyes from a photo of a tiger.

@marlboromaam @ludwigsdiana @lindasees @30pics4jackiesdiamond @elatedpixie @koalagardens @pixelchix @grammyn @shutterbug49 @orion5d Thank you all so much for your great comments, fav’s and for bringing this to the PP.
I adored those books too so it’s probably time to revisit them. But I’m glad they didn’t make them into a film the last time they did that with ‘A letter to the King’ I was totally disappointed ........only the names were the same everything else was different.
